This snorkel has a bend towards the passenger side of the car isntead of drawing air directly head-on. It is held in by 2 push-type plastic clips; one on each side of it. We were still able to install the VT Bigmouth without removing the bumper, but we had to loosen the plastic piece in the engine bay that sits directly above the grille. This required using a T30 torx bit to remove 4 screws so that we can stick our hands in there and pop out the clips. Good luck!
    So it no longer looks like the black plastic piece in steps 5 and 6? Can you post a picture?

    Sorry, don't have a pic, but imagine that same piece, but it extends forward a bit then makes a 90degree turn towards the passenger side (aka blocking the left clip completely). So from the top view of the piece, it's an L shape.

    Not sure why they made this change, because it seems like intake flow is distrupted compared to the old design...

    My only recommendation would be use “driver’s side” and “passenger’s side” versus “righter”....

    Other than that, a solid write-up that was able to get’r’done.

    Used this method to install on a 2016. One thing to add is if you remove the engine cover and the Airbox cover you get more room for the hex key. Also be careful taking off the stock snorkel you can damage the top of the radiator.

    Anyone have a guideline as to how much to cut the shroud for the snorkel? I have a 2018 and large manly hands, so I may have a little troubles lol -- especially with the driver's side clip.

    U jyst cut a small piece where the snorkel would drop down through it. You can find a template for the frpp snorkel online and use that as a guide.
